  • Sudden cardiac death occurs in young athletes for
    a variety of reasons

    rhythms or heart anatomy
  • Drugs can trigger cardiac arrest (cocaine,
    stimulants, anabolic steroids, and ephedrine are
    common culprits)
  • Heat stroke can lead to cardiac arrest
  • Viral illnesses can cause myocarditis
    (infection of the heart muscle) which can cause
    sudden cardiac arrest

    have sudden cardiac arrest (more common in
    African-Americans)

42

    undiagnosed heart problems
